There is no documentation whatsoever. This is just a feature proposition right
now (it's not included in Cassandra, at least not yet), so it's not a
all encouraged to use it
unless of course it's to test it and give feedback to the patch author
(which I can only
encourage you to do :)). But right now you'll have to do it on the
application side.
